  1. Tejada who is the same age as Jeter and put up similar offensive numbers last year as Jeter just signed a 1 year $6.5million contract and Jeter is asking for more money anually than Tulo's new contract? Get real

  2. If this isn't a glass of reality juice for Jeter/Close, then I don't know what will be. If we look at just the 7 year extension of $132 million for Tulo, it comes out to just under $19 million/year. fWAR for his first 4 seasons: 5.4, 0.9, 5.7, 6.4. Also he's 26. Jeet's fWAR the past 4 years: 3.5, 3.7, 7.1, 2.5. And he's 36. And asking for $4 million more per year than (probably) the 2nd best SS in the game (I'll assume Hanley had a down year). Huh?
